New: Cat’s Out Of The Bag: Everett Is Growing And Very Cool

Posted on May 17, 2019

Just in time for spring gardens and lawns, one of Pickett Street’s latest listings features a cozy Riverside Everett home with an outdoor space full of potential. This cash-only, two-bedroom, one-bath listing also has a wood stove to warm the main living space, the sweetest loft, and hardwood floors.

About a 45 minute drive from downtown Seattle, Everett sits on the Puget Sound in Snohomish County. The city is currently experiencing exciting renovations—Everett recently approved a development plan for a mixed-use waterfront on the site of a former landfill. This waterfront will include a specialty grocery store, a movie theater, and condo and multi-family home units, as well as a large park, trails, and a wetland restoration.

As one resident commented, “It has been a bit of a secret that the city has been improving and getting way cooler and part of me wishes it had stayed that way to keep it from getting crowded but the cat is out of the bag.”

Get in touch with Pickett Street if you’re interested in this new listing, or in buying or selling other properties in Everett (425-502-5397 or In the meantime, here’s more about the surrounding area. 

What to Do in the Area

One of the best parts about Everett is that many of the city’s best activites are free. Nestled in Everett’s Legion Park is the Evergreen Arboretum and Gardens where you can wander around the Northwest Native Plant Trail and the Japanese Maple Grove for exactly zero dollars. The 175-acre Animal Farm also offers free admission.

Additionally, residents call Jetty Island one of Washington’s hidden gems, and “the best beach on the Puget Sound.” Everett residents and visitors can access this sandy beach—which supposedly, somehow, boasts warm waters in the summer!—by hopping on a free foot ferry. 

Finally, the city’s Schack Art Center offers studio nights and art classes in silversmithing, stained glass, drawing, painting, and more. The Center’s exhibits feature local and international artists, as well as upcoming young artists. Everett is also home to the Hibulb Cultural Center; this center honors and preserves the Tulalip tribes’ history and culture.

The city’s Riverside neighborhood, where you can find Pickett Street’s new listing, also sits near Garfield Park.

Where to Dine

Make sure to stop by Everett’s infamously mouthwatering Tacobook Taqueria, which residents swear serves for $1.50 “the best damn carnitas you’ll ever have.” Grab a cocktail on the waterfront at Everett’s beloved Blue Water Distilling.

For a sit down dinner, try the Italian restaurant Capers + Olives or The New Mexicans, which serves classic southwestern dishes. Finally, residents highly recommend the amazing dishes at Jubie’s BBQ and Caribbean Delight, which features brightly colored walls and—get this—rum punch from a fountain machine. 

Also, rumor has it that tucked away in Everett’s stripmall, you can find one of the best sushi restaurants in Washington state, Oshima Sushi.

Washington’s secret hub of cool in Everett won’t stay a secret for much longer. Don’t wait to get in touch with Pickett Street to find out more about their Everett listings (425-502-5397 or
